Abbeville parks job open for applicants

For the past few months, the City of Abbeville’s parks director position has been vacant.
Denise Mire, the former director, moved to another position in city hall. With the COVID-19 pandemic affecting the ability to have sports last fall, city officials did not immediately fill the position.
Now, the city is currently taking applications for the position, one that would oversee operations in the city’s 11 parks.
“Anyone interested in the position can apply at city hall,” Mayor Mark Piazza said Wednesday morning.
